With the major stories of torture/rendition and spying on US citizens, one important revelation has slipped away virtually unnoticed - the fact that the Blair Government and the British Intelligence services had prior knowledge of the London bombings on July 7th of this year.

The London Times reported last weekend that MI5 and MI6 had specifically warned Tony Blair before the July 7 suicide bombings that Al-Qaeda was planning a “high priority” attack specifically aimed at the London underground system.

The source is a leaked four-page report by the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC), signed off by the heads of MI5, MI6 and GCHQ, the government eavesdropping centre.

Furthermore, the intelligence services were aware of the "bombers" and had them under surveillance 18 months prior to the attack. The simply decided to "stop monitoring" them.

Is it any coincidence then that last week, Blair ruled out a public inquiry on the grounds that it would detract from the ongoing investigation. The Government is simply going to release a report telling us what happened. This action has been taken because as Blair knows, any independent inquiry would uncover the fact that the specific attack was expected, the suspects were known to British Intelligence and nothing was done to prevent it.

Of course an inquiry would also bring up everything else we have exhaustively documented over the past six months that provide proof positive that British Intelligence had a hand in the attacks with the motive of rallying the people behind draconian new terror laws, a motive that totally failed even though the attack succeeded.

If specific warnings were given why did the MI5 also DOWNGRADE the terror alert level for the first time in four years?

Is it a coincidence that drills were taking place in the exact same sites as the real bombings at exactly the same times? The Intel agencies had warnings of attacks in tube stations, and drills by Visor Consultants for "unnamed clients" were being run in tube stations.

The bombs were sophisticated military type explosives and were ON TIMERS (why would suicide bombers need timers?) Furthermore they were reported to have come from UNDER the trains.

The bombers themselves were acting strangely for people who expect to die, arguing over being short changed, popping into MacDonalds for a burger, buying return train tickets. People who knew them were subsequently afraid to talk because "MI5 would get them", some did say they would never had done such a thing that and the video of Mohammad Sidique Khan released to show a "confession" was some kind of fake.

Add to all this the fact that the suspected mastermind of the operation was working for MI6 and was allowed to come and go at his own leisure, in and out of the country, plus the revelations that Scotland Yard knew about both the 7/7 and 21/7 attacks before they happened. This isn't even all the evidence, yet it still adds up to a mountain of information that any real inquiry would uncover with ease.
